Arson and Terrorism in Bangkok

On May 19, 2010 the army moved in to put an end to the red shirt protests. Some leaders were arrested, but not before they ordered their followers to burn the city to the ground.



(rough translation: "Burn it all, I take full responsibility!")



Many banks have been burned, stores looted and public property destroyed. Thank you Thaksin- I hope you die.

The city and the rest of the country are slowing turning back to normal life as cleanups started and mourning continues. So far order has been restored and effort are being made to repair the damages inflicted on the buildings and society.
